Most people think Bad Egg was put in by Game Freak to "discourage" people from cheating. I think that's incorrect; my view on Bad Egg is that it is generated by improperly creating a Pokemon via cheating, thereby producing corrupt data which is interpreted as being a "bad" (corrupt) egg.

That's my $0.02 on the matter ;)

Intentional Evidence:
1.)Bad Egg is both in the 3rd gen and 4th gen.
2.)It doesn't have a question mark or a glitchy name.

Possibly. It is also possible that Nintendo was going to make so the egg could be used in battle, but would have no attacks or something, but decided not to, and something went wrong when they erased its ability to go to battle.

Well for one reason, why the hell would they make an egg a "Pok?mon", I say intentional.

I think Bad Egg is a beta egg and the status message is actually an error message to say that it won't hatch. It was used during programming so the programmers at Nintendo and Gamefreak would know when the breeding process went wrong.

No. Bad EGG usually appears where sharking has gone wrong. I have done loads of successful cheats, no Bad EGG. To get a Bad EGG I usually have to purposely ruin the code.

I think Bad EGG is caused when the last byte of the data doesn't match a checksum.  Thus, by this evidence, it is probable that Bad EGG is designed to thwart some cheating.

This is my theory, but I've actually seen in backed up by some evidence in the past. Nonetheless, let me explain my beliefs here.

Since Bad Egg is commonly found from using cheating devices such as GameShark, I believe there is a high likeliness that the developers added it in to condemn such behavior. Knowing there is a glitch that could harm your game from using a cheating device could persuade you not to do so.

A bad egg can appear if a pokemon's EV total is over 510.

I don't think it is, maybe people were trying to cheat for so called 'ultimate pokemon' by changing their EVs?  :D
